Good afternoon. On behalf of more than 300,000 FedEx team members among the various FedEx companies around the world, thank you for inviting me. It’s my pleasure to address such an influential group, including many friends and acquaintances I’ve worked with through the decades. I’ve been coming to Washington for quite a while, and FedEx has long played an active role in promoting public policy that we believe benefits not only our customers but the general public as well. While the issues may change, what doesn’t change is the importance of getting policy right.
